According to the odds at most bookmakers, Nadal is set to beat Ruud quite comfortably today. He has odds of 1.16 at many sites, whereas Ruud has been given odds of 5.50, or even as low as 6.00 at certain betting sites. These French Open odds really do tell a story for the most likely outcome for this game today. After all, Rafael Nadal has never lost a French Open final, and Casper Ruud has never even played in one.
This obviously doesn’t bode too well for the young Norwegian, not on paper anyway. But the game won’t be played on paper. It will be played in front of a packed Philippe-Chatrier crowd, and anything could happen once the players get rolling. And now that we’ve detailed the odds for both players to win, how about some of the other intriguing markets you may also want to go for? This is all detailed below.
French Open odds for alternative markets
All signals point to a Nadal victory in the men’s final today. But if you wanted to make a wager on a ‘valuable market’, this obviously isn’t the best call to make. Even a £100 bet would result in a mere £16 profit, and needless to say, this is more money than most people should be wagering on any event, not just the Roland Garros final. So this means that it’s important to assess other possibilities, of which we have found a few:
Ruud to win at least one set - 1.83 odds
Casper Ruud has been phenomenal in his previous two rounds at the French Open. He has raised his tennis to new levels, and we feel that he has a great chance of taking a set from the legendary Spaniard. Ruud has a consistent yet aggressive style of play on the clay, and this is what’s necessary against Nadal. Of course, he will have to sustain this level to make this market pull through, but we do believe he can do it.
Total games - over 33.5 - 1.83 odds
Given that we are suggesting that Ruud can win a set against Rafael Nadal, it makes sense to also predict that the match will go more than 33.5 games. This would be very tough in just a three-set match, as each set would need to finish 7-5 or 7-6. But should Ruud be able to take a set from Nadal, it is then almost certain that the game would extend beyond 33.5 games. That’s just the way that scoring works in tennis!
Double fault totals - 8+ - 5.50 odds
We’ve saved one of the more ambitious predictions for last here. Given that it’s a final, there will obviously be nerves on both sides. Typically, Nadal can throw in a couple of double faults at key moments, although he rarely serves a ton during any individual game. As for Casper Ruud, he isn’t a huge double fault guy either. But against Cilic, he did throw in 4 double faults in just 4 sets.
